"I thought (t)his matter was resolved by the Ethical Theory known as the Hartman/katz breakthrough." Obviously not, Dr. Katz. # "Isn't the theory by Dr. M. C. Katz (based upon the Formal Axiology of Robert S. Hartman (1910-1973) adequate to answer your query?" Obviously not, Dr. Katz. # "If you are ...

None.

Rick's ownership (based entirely in his control over, his power over, the forum) trumps all of us.

Keep in mind what I posted...tease out the very obvious meaning...then hand me my petard.

"I guess that sums you up."

As far as you're concerned: no doubt.

Again: when other posters use handles it ain't kosher, but when you do not only is it kosher, ir's down-right philosophical.

How does that work?

If you think authority comes from any place other than a gun (or bomb, or spear, or knife, or fist) then you are toxically, lethally, naive.

A place where there are no madmen with guns, for a start.

Nope, you're not a troll, but absolutely you're a moron if that's what you got from my post. # "I think , you're all talk, henry" I think -- instead of hikin' twelve miles -- you mebbe walked twelve feet (to the frid...

"You know, Henry, people would have a better quality of life if they would give up hating." Nope. Hate is the on-going result of an assessment. If the assessment is in error, then so is the hate.

"The choic presented is: to actively kill one or to deliberately kill many." Particulars change the equation... Kill my ten year old (turning eleven this week) to save a group of strangers? Nope. Kill someone I hate to save a group of strangers? Yep. Kill a stranger to save a group of strangers? Dep...
